15 Viral Pinterest Photos That Are Actually Fake

Photoshop is a tricky, tricky thing.

Posted on

1. The "purple trees" in Fairy Pools, Scotland.

The truth: It's pretty, but alas, it's a Photoshop. None of those trees are purple, nor Scottish; the photo is actually of Shotover River in New Zealand. See here for the complete debunking.

2. Blue "moonmelon."

According to the caption: “This fruit grows in some parts of Japan, and is known for its vibrant blue color. What you probably don’t know about this fruit is that it can switch flavors after you eat it. Everything sour will taste sweet, everything salty will taste bitter, and it gives water a strong orange-like taste.”

The truth: Uh.... Photoshop.

3. Baby polar bear.

According to the caption: Usually listed as "brand new baby polar bear" or "cute polar bear.

The truth: It's not a real bear. It's a stuffed bear that you can buy a pattern to make on Etsy. It IS cute, though.
